John Judge doesn’t have to look far to see just how valuable the playing experience he gained last season — his first as a starter — was. All he needs to do is look around at practice.
Jared Cook is gone. So is Jordan Howard. As are Chandler Morgan and Niclas Schoenhof. Those are four players in a six-man rotation that not only worked hard, but the rotation worked quite well. But with just Judge and fellow starter Tommy Wann back in the fold for the 2014-15 season, that experience is unbelievably invaluable.
